  1. Hey all! I am doing my research for a plastic surgeon for my own BA in Sydney and sheesh it is mind boggling! There are so many out there but here are some that have appealed to me based on their website, prices, experience and most importantly (to me), before and after photos. DR: Warwick Nettle John Kippen Alfred Lewis Darryl Hodgkinson Warwick Harper Bobby A Kumar Tim Papadopalos Graham Sellars Benjamin Norris Peter Laniewski Richard Sackelaiou George Mason Steven Merten Eddy Dona William Pouw- why is he so cheap in comparison to others? Charles Cope Laith Barnociti Ron Bezic Peter Hayward Any other recommendations besides Dr Miroshnik, Steven Liew, Jake Lim and Kourosh Tavakoli? Many thanks for any feedback
  2. Hi, Im new to the forum so go easy on me I have been considering a breast lift and was hoping some people could recommend or share experiences for Sydney surgeons and possibly overseas. I know a lot of you have experience with both the implants and lifts but Im just after the lift lol Im more inclined to have it done in Sydney because im a little bit scared of the idea of getting it done overseas. So if anyone could give me info on: - good docs for this type of surgery both overseas and syd. (minimal scaring, natural. I know that is can vary with patients and natural reaction) - cost (around $11,000.00 with no health insurance? is that the average price?) I don't know the lingo yet but would appreciate any help anyone has to offer thanks!
  3. Hey everyone! Have been doing research for awhile and am looking for some suggestions/ideas for a surgeon in Sydney that does natural types of BA. Anyone had any experience with this? Would travel as far as Newcastle if I had to put would prefer somewhere in Sydney. I'm thinking I want low profile, under the muscle, round textured - originally wanted tear drop but after reading so many other threads have learnt they can flip When I have been looking alot of places do "breast implant looking implants" not sure if that makes sense lol but I don't really want them to look "fake." Am thinking I will go with Dr Steven Liew but any comments or ideas would be great. Thanks
  4. Finally after 10 years of ummming and aaarhing about breast implants, I made an appointment with Dr Steve Merten in Sydney. A friend of mine had hers done there and her experience had been extremely positive and her breasts looked amazing. I did extensive research, especially on this forum, and kind of knew what to expect…. I almost made an appointment with Dr Dona in Bella Vista, however he is a considerable distant from me as I live in the inner city, and the receptionist told me that he only uses round implants, also, the deposit for the first consult was non-refundable. I also made an inquiry with Dr Miroshnik, who’s work looks amazing, however I was quoted around $14,000, which was a bit over my budget. I went for my first consult in early September 2013 with Dr Merten. I felt very comfortable with him; he was very professional, personable and down to earth. I knew I’d made the right choice. I was a small B cup with my left breast being smaller than the right, so Dr Merten suggested placement of 330cc in the left and 280cc in the right. I wanted a natural look so opted for teardrop implants, with the end result size hopefully being a D cup. So after the first consultation, I booked my surgery for 2-1/2 weeks later! I paid a $500 deposit and off I went. After years of procrastination, I just wanted to get it over and done with. Luckily where I work they’re very flexible with leave, I didn’t tell them what the leave was for only that I had to attend to a ‘personal’ matter. I had one more consult with Dr Merten a week before the surgery, just to re-check sizing and to be fitted with a support bra. I was to have the procedure done at the North Shore Private Day Surgery in Greenwich. The hospital would be giving me a call the day before the surgery to confirm times etc. A breakdown of the costs were: Dr Merten - $7,300.00 Hospital fees: $1,515. 00 Anesthetics fee - $771.00 Total = $9,586.00. The night before the surgery I was so nervous, and my stomach was churning out butterflies. I was to be at the hospital at 8.30am. Before I left that morning I made sure I was wearing comfy pants and a button up shirt, I did not wear any jewelry and had packed my support bra. I caught the train to St Leonards, as morning peak hour traffic to North Sydney is horrendous. It's only a 10-minute walk to the hospital from the train station. Easy. My Husband was working in the morning but had managed to get the afternoon off to come to pick me up. After registering at the hospital, a nurse escorted me to a room where I put on a really warm fluffy white dressing gown and was covered with a heated blanket as anesthetic can make you really cold. Dr French, the anesthetist paid me a visit and spoke to me about the anesthetist procedure. She was a very nice doctor. Dr Merten came in and drew lines and marks over my breasts. I had decided to go under the muscle, to give a more natural look, and reduce the possibility of capsular contracture. Then off we went to the operating room, where I went under within seconds, and woke up a couple of hours later in recovery. The surgery had gone splendidly, I was bandaged up and the nurses were putting my clothing back on. I’m so glad I wore a button up shirt. I sat in recovery for a few hours, reeling from the affects of the anesthetic, but in no pain. The nurses were absolutely fabulous. I was given tea, biscuits and cheese and waited for my husband to come pick me up. I had been prescribed a cocktail of drugs including Endone, Valium, Nurefen, Panamax and antibiotics. My husband came to pick me up and we went home. I laid on the lounge with a plethora of supporting pillows. Still no pain, nicely dosed on Endone, I slept a bit, had some food and drank loads of water. I went to bed and slept in a half seated position all night. In fact I slept like this for the first couple of weeks. The next morning, geez louise! I felt a tightness across my chest and pain mainly under my right arm, so I popped some more Endone, had brekky and sat at the dining room table then I laid on the lounge for a while slept. Well, on day 3 – crappola! – woke up at 4.30am in a lot of pain. I took ages to get out of bed. I had to wiggle my bottom off the bed without using my arms. It was so painful!! I just couldn’t lift my left arm. I was feeling very tight in the chest. I took an Endone and two Nurofen…. then I was in lala land…..My husband had taken time off work to look after me, which was a big help. The first few days I was able to walk around, shower, eat etc by myself. I stopped taking endone after day 4 as it made me a bit constipated. Also, I wanted rid of the foggy feeling it gives you. Dr Merten did advise me that going under the muscle is a lot more painful than over’s, but the result is well worth it. Gradually over the next few weeks, the pain subsided, but I did develop extreme nipple sensitivity. I never lost feeling in my nipples but they became extra sensitive. That subsided after a week or two. After a week, I went back to Dr Merten, who took off my bandages. This was the first time I had a proper look at my new breasts. I was mightily pleased, so very pleased with the results. In fact they looked amazing, swelling and all. Now four months after the procedure, I am just in love with my new look. My breasts look natural and I am now in proportion. I have been bra shopping and was properly fitted at David Jones, where I am now a proud D cup. I must say that the Calvin Klein bras are the best I’ve bought so far. So comfortable and sexy. I bought a gorgeous cossie from Zimmerman and can’t wait to show off my new breasts when I go holidaying in Thailand this year. My experience with Dr Merten was nothing but excellent and problem free. He’s a really outstanding doctor. I would highly recommend him to anyone. I ended up having: Mentor Gel Breast Implant, CPG cohesive III, Medium Height, Moderate Plus Profile. L = 330cc, R = 280cc. Anatomical / teardrop shape with a textured surface. (Referred to as a “Gummy bear” breast implant due to the thickness of the silicone) Just a few of things I learned from this: - Wear a button up shirt to the hospital and don’t forget your non-underwire support bra. - I could not exercise for 6 weeks after the operation. That meant no running, gym, weights etc…. Only walking. - Anatomical textured implants do not need massaging. They are low maintenance! - I could wear a normal under wire bra after 4 weeks or so. - I had to wear the surgical tape on the scars (under crease scar) for 8 weeks. - After 8 weeks, I’ve been rubbing Rosehip oil into the scars twice a day, which seems to help them as lot. (My scars healed very well, they are smooth and about 4-½ cm long) - For me I suffered pain, but not abnormal pain. It’s just the muscles repairing themselves. - Do your research. This forum was invaluable. - The swelling can take quite a few weeks to go down. Four months in and they are still settling and changing a little bit. - After all the effort, money and pain, I consider this one of the best things I have ever done. I feel confident, sexy and I look so much better in clothes. (IMO:cool:)
  5. Hi guys, I'm a newbie to this forum but so far it seems like a really good resource to have. I'm twenty years old, and want to get a breast reduction. I'm quite petite, short person, yet have enormous boobies (10FF) Just wondering if anyone had experience getting this surgery done in Sydney? And if there were any surgeons you could recommend. Thanks, Renae
  6. Hey All, I got my implants with Dr Zion Chan in Sydney about 2 years ago, under muscle high profile 375CC - although very happy with the shape and his work I am not happy with the size. I am more of a fan of the 'Fake look" the bigger, more round and higher shape of implants honestly and although these implants I have now are beautiful they are not the kind I desire. Looking to go back for a resize and revision this year but unsure if I should go back to Dr Chan or see someone who specialises more in the look I am after ??? Any help is much appreciated if anyone knows or has seen work of any surgeons who can achieve the look i am after ! Thankyou !!!!!
